The premise of Management of Managers is that effective leaders need multiple skills to allow for flexibility in successfully managing and leading in diverse situations. Effective leaders understand the subtleties of personal interaction and how they relate to the performance objectives of their organization. This five-day course provides a conceptual framework for evaluating your managerial skills and organization characteristics illustrating how they work in your organization. In order to initiate a personalized action plan for developing strong people related skills, participants will distribute a High-Performing Self Assessment to others who are familiar with your work both inside and outside your organization, prior to attending the program. Comparison of specific feedback will provide insight into your specific managerial style and effectiveness. Participants will also complete a self-assessment providing insight to their profile using the Competing Values Framework.
NOTE: You are advised to register well in advance of the program start date in order to allow enough lead time for the completion of these assessments.
